Dr. Tim's Pet Foods donated over 20,000 lbs of dog and cat food to the Butte Humane Society in Chico, California in response to the needs of animals and owners following the Camp Fire. Many people have been visiting the Butte Humane Society for food, crates and other pet related goods, with more than 300 people stopping by on some days. The organization has also taken in many animals with no idea of who they belong to or the area where they came from. Slowly, they are finding their owners but many may not, the staff says.
In this holiday season, Dr. Tim's urges you to help those who are less fortunate. The company wishes the best to those affected by the Camp Fire and it will continue its support as needed.
